A velvety smoked oak finish. Hints of clove. Excited to experience with grilled meats, toasted crostini, tomates, and a nice aged gouda.

Mettler Family Vineyards:
With their roots in the wine industry dating back to the 1770s, it’s no surprise that the Mettler Family is still growing grapes today.

With their roots in the wine industry dating back to the 1770s, it’s no surprise that the Mettler Family is still growing grapes today. After migrating to the U.S. in the late 1800’s, the Mettler family migrated to California, where they knew that farming would bring success. The east side of the now famous Lodi region is where the first Mettler vineyards were planted by George Mettler which began the family's Lodi legacy. Carl Mettler, 4th generation farmer and George’s grandson, continued the family tradition and dedicated his life to farming his grandfather's land. Carl and his wife raised their family amongst their Lodi vineyards. Carl worked closely with nearby Universities and delegated several vineyard sites to experimental varieties. This experimentation helped to establish growing conditions for specific varieties in the Lodi region. Carl's dedication in the vineyard awarded him a spot in the Agricultural Hall of Fame. His integrity and love of the land is still being carried out by one of his three sons, Larry Phillip, who is also the receipient of the Agricultural Hall of Fame award and still farms the original Mettler Vineyards, along with his wife Char and their three children, Kimberly, Kelli and Adam.

An exceptional Zin for the price. I bought this on the recommendation of a local wine store and cafe... and then just keep buying more. At $21 I have found nothing that comes close to it for the price.

soft and spicy with the flavors of wild berry lifesaver gummies. sweet long finish with some heat but at 15.6% alcohol it is extremely well contained. paired with buffalo chicken meatballs. good pairing.
